In my adventures on the path to “Know Thyself” I continually conduct experiments on myself to see how various relatively everyday environmental factors, foods, meditation techniques, and thought processes affect me directly or have an impact on my life in some way.
What I’ve found is that everything, absolutely everything affects our consciousness levels – either for the better or the worse … and especially food.
On Facebook recently I was asked a question about how I had lost weight and improved my health. I posted a lengthy reply to that comment and thought I would reproduce it here as a blog post so my blog viewers can benefit too.
Here’s the reply in detail …
There’s a bit of a story behind it but there’s an important point to it at the end – eg. why it has lasted. Interestingly, it began with William Whitecloud MW course. One of my “choices” (goals) was to have a pure, high vibration body. Another was to to embody a state of consciousness where I can be love and spread love in the world. It was a case of “be careful what you wish for” as along the path, I developed food insensitivities where any low vibration food affected my health. So – I removed wheat, dairy, sugar and anything processed from my diet and drank a lot of water. All these thing clog our connection to source.
I also do yoga and detox every three months.
Through this process my spiritual growth went through the roof and I’m a completely different person to what I was when I was at MW.
Now here’s the point to the story ….
Had my goal simply to be to lose weight, it wouldn’t have worked long term as I have yo-yoéd in the past. Had it been to simply improve my health or fix a health challenge, that may or may not have worked long term for me. But – because the state of my body is inextricably linked to my mission in life and because my mission is so much bigger than simply being about me (it’s easier to be easy on ourselves when the mission is just about ourselves), it is just a part of who I am now. My health regime is by no means perfect but I’m working towards it – it’s a journey.
Simple things can make a big improvement and people don’t need to go all out from the start. It can be a gradual process. Even the act of drinking double the amount of water in a day helps.
I learnt about whole foods from Don Tolman and Don’s son @Tyler Tolman and Rachelle Starr runs events around Australia. So – eat natural food YES but also make sure you link in your weight/health goals to other really important values in your life (whether it’s family, kids, career etc). When it becomes so much more than just being about your own health or your own weight eg. better health or more energy that helps you [insert the blank], I find there’s a lot more discipline there. Hope that helps, Kirsty. 🙂

By now most people are aware that our thoughts attract things … or more specifically, energised thoughts make those thoughts manifest into reality. The more aligned our energy is with our thoughts, the faster we manifest. And the higher our vibration levels that we can maintain the faster and more powerfully we manifest.
Believe it or not, nutrition plays a massive role in maintaining a high vibration level. For years, I had read about how important it is to eat a vegetarian diet, not only from a health perspective but also for the purposes of helping us attain and maintain a high consciousness level. Whenever I read that, the human side of me would pipe in and say, “Yeah, yeah, yeah. That’s probably okay for them but it doesn’t apply to me.”
It wasn’t until I developed a chronic health condition and weant on a nautral health journey did I actually experience the effects that nutruition on consciousness levels and in turn my ability to manifest results in my life.
Here is what I have found works for me:
We all know that our bodies need water and that we should drink two or more litres of water a day to maintain great health. Yes? But what many people don’t realise is that water also plays a massive role in helping us attain and maintain a high vibratory state. I found that when I was dehydrated, my mood levels were fairly down. On some days, depression would even set in. But – within a minute or two of drinking a big glass of water, my body would tingle and I’d go back into a very high, and sometimes bliss-filled space.
I love coffee because it really get the neurons and adrenaline firing, and helps me be highly productive when I’m writign or consulting. Having said that, it makes me edgy and I lose my bliss space. After the caffeine high starts to wear off, my mood drops and I either need another coffee to get it back up there.
When I’m conscious of what has occurred, instead I reach for a couple of glasses of water which help neutralise the effects of caffeine on my nervous system and I return back to a fairly high space. But when I’ve had caffeine I find my intuitio levels are down and my ability to tune in to guides is significantly reduced.
Caffeine, as you probably know, is a stimulant and interferes with the functioning of the nervous system. Even though it gives us an instant energy hit, overall it depletes our bodies of energy, which prevents us from attaining a high vibratory state. And it’s that high vibration state that is essential in broadcasting our intentions to the Universe.
As part of my health adventure I have cut out all processed foods from my diet including dairy, wheat and any packaged products or chemicals. When I did that, I found that my body became very attuned to my environment. My intuition significantly increased and so did my ability to sense energy. You see, we are walking energy transmitters. When they are covered in gunk the signal they send is distorted or muted. But when our bodies are clean, we are sending and receiving clear signals from the Universe.
I go through about 5 packets of Goji berries a week. I’ll pop a handful in my mouth and as soon as I do that, my body starts to tingle and I can feel an instant vibrationary uplift. berries of all types ar eknown to enhance the performance of the nervous system and protect it from damage. The healthier our nervous system functions, the clearer the signals that our bodies send out into the Universe.
Vegetarian and especially raw food
Raw vegetables have a high vibrational frequency and take less time for our bodies to digest. The digestion process normally takes a lot of our body’s energy so it makes sense eat foods that don’t use up a lot of our body’s energy reserves. The more energy our body has, the easier it is for us to communicate our intentions to the Universe. You have probably experienced it yourself … after a big meal of meat many people feel heavy and full and often lethargic. This is no co-incidence.
Vegetables, as I mentioned earlier (especially raw ones) have a high vibrational frequency which means when we ingest them, they often increase or at the very least, entrain with our body’s own vibrational frequency. Not only that, they help protect and restore the functioning of our body’s nervous system so we can clearly communicate with the Universe.
Certain foods have a higher vibrational frequency than others. As mentioned, berries are one of them. Other foods include Omega 3, coconut oil fish oils and Chia seeds.
Fasting and detoxification
A clean body equals a powerful intention transmitter. Regular detoxification rids our bodies of the toxic crud that lines our organs and clogs our “intention signalling equipment”. With that, before exploring any of the above options, it’s important to clean out your equipment first. That’s why you’ll often read how the greatest “masters” all regularly fasted … to enhance their spiritual awareness. I know that whenever I fast, after day three or so I’m in an incredibly connected space.
So – even if going vegetarian doesn’t interest you from a health perspective, think about it from a manifestation power” perspective. If you want to manifest powerfully it’s vital that you have a transmitter (your body) that is transmitting strong signals. Go ahead experiment. Try it and see what you experience. And let me know how you go – I’d love to hear from you.
